Once again, here are 8 puzzles of mixed difficulty for y'all to try out. As I have always said, it's not about how much time you spend per day on training; it's how often you do it. Really, 10-15 minutes per day working on puzzles is good enough if you're simply too busy.
|Position 1: Black to move|
|Position 2: White to move|
|Position 3: Black to move and mate in 4|
|Position 4: White to move|
|Position 5: White to move|
|Position 6: Black to move and mate in 2|
|Position 7: Black to move|
Finally, here's a position from one of my tournament games: I was White, and both my and my opponent had less than 5 minutes each on our clocks. It is my turn to move; can I hold a draw in this position?
|Position 8: White to move, can he draw?|
Have fun, and all the best! (:
